Item description for Pasiones/passions by Rosa Montero...

Is love eternal? Is it dangerous to love? With these eighteen essays, Rosa Montero brings us closer to intense relationships, though not all have happy endings. From Marc Anthony and Cleopatra to John Lennon and Yoko Ono, from Oscar Wilde and Lord Alfred Douglas to Arthur Rimbaud and Paul Verlaine, this is a fascinating book that describes the inferno and paradise of love, and illustrates an astonishing historical mosaic of adventurous existence.

Description in Spanish: Sabido es que hay amores que matan. Y en Pasiones, Rosa Montero da fe de ello a travs de la descripcin de dieciocho grandes idilios de todas las pocas. Son historias de pasiones famosas, solitarias o compartidas, de desgracias eternas y felicidades ms bien pasajeras.

La autora nos acerca as a las intensas relaciones que vivieron desde Marco Antonio y Cleopatra hasta Juana la Loca y Felipe el Hermoso, desde Eva Duarte y Juan Pern hasta John Lennon y Yoko Ono o como la de Lewis Carroll por la nia Alice Liddell.

Una obra fascinante que describe los infiernos y los parasos del amor y dibuja un rico mosaico histrico sobre la asombrosa aventura de la existencia.

Reviews - What do customers think about Pasiones/passions?

intresting,interesante  Dec 12, 2002
Es sumamente interesante las historias de personas famosas que estuvieron envueltos en amores prohibidos y desamores.Estamos viviendo en una sociedad donde el amor lo es todo.Y es bueno saber que no solo esta epoca se viven esos amores tormentosos sino que siempre han existido aunque desgraciadamente muchas de las personas envueltas en estas pasiones no resolvieron sus problemas favorablemente.
Love is all  Aug 17, 2001
Rosa Montero's Pasiones, is a compilation of love stories, famous love stories, that share one thing in common: above all, there is always love.

Rosa Montero's precision and interesting writing style lets readers get an "insight" of all of these stories. In other words, it is not just a brief description of the story, but it is a conclusion, a personal opinion of the love surrounding the story.

Besides finding love in the stories, a reader will find disaster, crime, passion, sadness, deception, murder and crazyness as the main characteristics of all of these love stories.

I think that the book is very well made, and Rosa is, once more, showing the public his critic view and his wonderful way of putting things.

I loved the book. Definitely a buy.
